When ever I mastubate, don't know why but I feel that mastubating is changing my body in a bad way and I also feel that it is harming my body. True?

When ever I mastubate, don't know why but I feel that mastubating is changing my body in a bad way and I also feel that it is harming my body. True?

Unlikely to matter: Masturbation is a topic often frowned on by various segments of society ; seldom discussed openly. If done to the point that the individual does not have time ; energy to get involved in normal peer activities it is a negative. Any obsession detracts from your healthy emotional growth. However, the occasional event does not make any difference in your physical growth. Ditch any guilt, it is normal. Read more

I have just read a article on monsanto is bad for you now scared to eat because im going to die or do harm to my body?

I don't believe it: Some of my colleagues here oppose biotech food. I respectfully disagree. What I can tell you is that (1) I can't follow the scare stuff scientifically; (2) Monsanto's corporate methods are so odious that it's no wonder whole countries ban its stuff; (3) the most-cited famous anti-biotech article in a bona fide journal was as obvious a fake as Wakefield's. Eat you food and stop worrying. Read more

What is your opinion on self harm? Do you think it is bad? What can you tell people who do it?

What is your opinion on self harm? Do you think it is bad? What can you tell people who do it?

Compassion: People who do self-harm activities are usually struggling with painful feelings, and don't need further judgments from me or anyone else. However, they do generally need help with understanding and accepting themselves. Psychotherapy can help in these areas, along with mindfulness practices. Sometimes medications may be needed, if accompanying symptoms like depression/anxiety are overwhelming. Read more

After a long time, can self-harm become just a bad habit that has no significant connection to underlying mental health problems?

Always Meaning: Even when our behavior becomes a habit, it has an underlying meaning. Self harm is a behavior that can become a habit, but I believed it's still linked to emotional distress and pain. Often the physical pain becomes a coping mechanism to deal (or rather not to deal) with overwhelming emotional difficulties. Hotline: http://ow. Ly/x7AVK Read more

Okay what is my chances with atelectosis if I have leukemia and if I have really bad health? Could it kill me? Or harm me? In some way

Okay what is my chances with atelectosis if I have leukemia and if I have really bad health? Could it kill me? Or harm me? In some way

This is important: You describe yourself as having "leukemia" yet worrying whether atelectasis, an x-ray sign that can be trivial or very serious depending on the context, is a threat to your life. Please forgive my frankness. You need to get with your personal physician and find out exactly what the score is. Do you actually have leukemia? If so, what type? Focus on this. Educate and empower yourself. Read more

How to massage the neck or back safely when needed? Please can u give instructions or a video link? Can we harm ourself by massaging in bad ways?

Some Caution: The neck houses a lot of important structures is a short, relatively compact area which should not be trifled with. Before arbitrary massage you would benefit from knowing some of the important anatomy. There are many good anatomic guides but this link seems to give straight forward information.

I broke my collarbone about 6 weeks ago, it still hasn't healed but today I fell and felt very bad pain, what happens if I harmed it with out it healed?

Ans: Why would such a young person take long to heal. By six weeks not completely healed but there should be calcification. So. Red to know what kind of a fracture did you have do you need surgical correction? If you don't heal you better follow up with the orthopedic. Are you a smoker? Read more

My 7 mo old diet without solid it's only formula since he refuse to eat badly does it harm my baby? How much solid is important?

My 7 mo old diet without solid it's only formula since he refuse to eat badly does it harm my baby? How much solid is important?

It's OK!: Infant formula or breast milk supplies all the nutrition your baby needs until the first birthday. Adding solids is more a developmental thng at this point than a "need" for nutrition. I would keep offering, so he can get the practice at eating, and develop the skill, but he will grow fine on the formula. Just like learning to walk, practice makes perfect, so work with him but don't stress over it. Read more

I get very angry over the smallest things and it takes me hours to calm down? I often self harm to calm myself, is this really a bad thing?

I get very angry over the smallest things and it takes me hours to calm down? I often self harm to calm myself, is this really a bad thing?

What you mention is: Not a good thing, it doesn't mean that you are not good. Please get what sounds like an impulse disorder treated by a mental health professional. Catching it at 18 Y.O. Will make the rest of your life better. If not, the probability of poor relationships and instability are higher. Peace and good health. Constructive vs. Distructive anger is the issue. Read more
